The female condom works like a normal condom, it prevents the sperm from fertilizing an egg
It is located in the vagina against the cervix
It can only be used once, after coitus it is removed and disposed of
As the name states it is only for female use
The most common side effect is slight irritation for the female, and with earlier models a squeaking noise has been reported.
With perfect use it is 95% effective at preventing pregnancy and the spread of STDs (including HIV). however typically it is 79% effective (due to operator errors).
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: more expensive than a traditional condom
